the democratic nominee arkansas gov. bill clinton. businessman ross perot entered the race as an independent candidate and the three major parties -- the two major party agreed to allow him to enter the debate. this is an hour and 40 minutes. >> here now is mr. ross perot. >> good to see you. thank you. how are you? thank you. >> now, governor clinton. [applause] and now, president bush. [applause] >> and about 30 seconds, we will be going on the air. good evening, and welcome to the first of 3 debates among the major candidates for president of the united states, sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. the candidates are: independent candidate ross perot, governor bill clinton, the democratic nominee, and president george bush, the republican nominee. i am jim lehrer of the macneil- lehrer news hour on pbs, and i will be the moderator for this 90-minute event, which is taking place before an audience in the athletic complex on the campus of washington university in st. louis, missouri. three journalists will be asking questions tonight. they are john mashek of the boston globe,
contradicts the state department's now deleted memo. since that discovery secretary of state hillary clinton has denied the concerns. remember this? >> there's one report suggesting that ambassador stevens that he was on a, quote, al-qaeda hit list. is this a scurrilous humor, gallous humor when one is workg in a period of great difficulty and challenge or is there something more to what he allegedly -- i stress that word -- said? >> as to your question, i have no information or reason to believe there's any basis for that. >> sean: despite the fact that our own ambassador e wrote it in his own diary, we're supposed to believe he never mentioned any of these concerns to his superiors, no emails, no diplomatic cables, nothing? secretary clinton also claims that the administration had no information to suggest that our assets in libya were ever at risk, but in light of the news that this was a premeditated terrorist attack by more than 100 al-qaeda affiliated operatives and in light of the fact that it was conducted on the anniversary of the september 11th attacks, how in the world are we to b
is rumored to be the president's choice to be hillary clinton's replacement. all 18 members of which, republicans and democrats, have signed a letter acceptability to the administration asking for a full accounting of the benghazi terrorist attacks and the events in yemen and egypt. the white house continues to give every appearance of stone walling, both the congress and the press. almost three weeks have passed since those attacks, and leaked from within the white house, an intelligence community suggests the obama administration has been involved in an outright cover up. there are reports tonight that officials within the administration were concerned from the very beginning about the message the white house chose to push after the attack. the attack that was spontaneous they said, and not at all the work of terrorists. here's white house spokesman jay carney back on the 14th of september. >> the incident in benghazi, as well as elsewhere, but these are all being investigated, what i'm saying is that we have no evidence at this time to suggest otherwise, that there was a preplanne
public. defense secretary, leon panetta, secretary of state hillary clinton now conceding it was an act of terror. still no word, no correction from the man who steered the false narrative, president obama himself. we take up all of this here tonight with the republican strategist who served in the bush white house, and also, negative economic reports having little effect on the market today. lou joins us as does the head of the catholic league, bill donohue on where the obama administration funds anti-christian art, if you can call it art, and the fight with planned parenthood. we begin with the obama administration still trying to put forward a narrative that matches facts. terrorism is a foreign word for this administration whose lack of transparency is further qomp kateed by a complete lack of security in the consulate in an unstable, violent, muslim nation. we have the latest in this live report. katherine? >> well, thank you, lou. associate for the director of national intelligence issued a statement that seemed to give cover to the administration while at the same time acknowledg
, not as a progressive, which, by the way, is what obama is, a progressive, just like hillary clinton, who admitted she was. host: let's not go too far off the rails here. i understand that the constitution, the check and balances that the constitution refers to is between the legislative, the judicial, and the executive branch, and doesn't really mention the establishment of a two-party system. caller: you need a two-party system. look what happened the first two years -- even though it took obama two years to get the healthcare through, they still had everything right there. unless you have a complete representative, you know, in there that represents everyone and just not one side, like all progressives or all republicans, you don't have those checks and balances, whether it's the legislative, judicial, presidency, whatever. you need -- the bottom line -- you know, there's one problem on this whole thing. obama is not a politician. i mean, he cannot negotiate. reagan was in there. he had a democrat in congress, and he was able to negotiate like several people. obama can't do that. he goes out there
of state hillary clinton meets with the israeli prime minister later this evening. for more on all of this we get two views. paul pillar had a 28-year career at the c.i.a., much of it focusing on the middle east. he's now a non resident fellow at georgetown university. and robert satloff is executive director of the washington institute for near east policy, a washington think tank. and we thank you both for being with us again. let me start with you, paul pillar. did you hear something new in what prime minister netanyahu said today? >> not really. the prime minister, of course, has been agitating and warning on the subject for quite some time and going beyond mr. netanyahu we've seen over the last several years, in fact, progressive projections that iran is on the verge of a nuclear weapon. most of those projections have not borne out. but what we didn't get in this-- in the comments by the prime minister was really a clear sense of what his preferred red line would be. if we take literally what he did with his red marker on his prop it would suggest he's say nothing 90% enrichme
. president obama had two appointees. george w. bush had two appointees. bill clinton had two. but there could be a bunch in a hurry. justice ginsburg is the most likely to leave. and if president obama wins, that wouldn't change the balance of five republicans and four democrats. but if the five-to-four balance shifts, you could see dramatic dramatic changes in the court. it all depends on who >> do you simply assume president obama would name someone like sonja sot ma yor or clarence thomas for that matter? can you just assume those would be the possibilit probabilities if you will? >> that is precisely what i would assume. you know, there's a mythology about the court that presidents often areurprised by how their justices turn out. but you know, that is very much the exception rather than the rule. if you look at the justices currently on the court right now, every single one of them has turned out more or less as re there are individual cases, there are surprises. i certainly was surpred by roberts' vote in the affordable care act case. hatlarge presidents w you e is what you get. iden yo
to be reelected. do you think, steve, people believe the bill clinton argument that nobody, no president, could have actually solved this in four years? >> yeah, i do think that had some effect. there is no question that president obama came out of the conventions with a little bit of momentum. you talk, it is not only showing up in the public polling that we're talking about here today but talk to republican pollsters polling on senate and house races and they will talk about what they call the clinton bump. they have seen it across polling in various parts of the country that voters who are asked a question is the country on the right track, is the country on the wrong track, which most pollsters believe the single best determiner ho will win in november, there was a jump in the right track number, even if they don't specifically agree with how the president is handling the economy, on the general question whether we're on the right track, they think we are, because you think in part democrats successfully pressed this message that nobody could have done better than president obama's done. gr
to be careful. you've got to proceed very cautiously to understand exactly what went on. secretary clinton, to her credit, has immediately initiated what already exists under the law, a formal inquiry with one of our most respected independent diplomatic figures, ambassador tom pickering, former undersecretary. he is heading this up and they will get the answers. i'm absolutely confident about that. what the republicans ought to be doing is not turning the tragedy of chris stevens' death -- this means something to us. chris stevens worked on our committee. he worked for dick lugar. he was a pearson fellow. he was a terrific ambassador representing our country. he cared about libya. he was committed to libya. and what are the republicans doing? all they can do is see the politics in this. they can't see how are we going to make sure that libya continues down the road to democracy and that those 30,000 libyans who stormed the militia headquarters and stole the weapons, are backed up over the next days in efforts that will help them make libya the libya we all want it to be. that's the questi
an endorsement from former president clinton can be. in fact, politico has called it the clinton crutch. how much will president obama be relaying on the former president to sell his economic plan, specifically? >> sure. well, look, president obama is a fantastic advocate for president obama. he's got a unique perspective that he brings to this campaign. having been through some of the challenges with the economy that the president faces today during the 1990s, and having implemented very similar proposals in terms of investing in education and investing in infrastructure, responsibly bringing down the debt, so his is a voice that we think is a very powerful voice in helping to tell the president's story. we think he's going to be a great advocate for us. we're excited he's giving us that time and we're excited to have him out advocating for the president on the trail. >> brent, hypothetically, let's say the president is re-elected. what's his first order of business next year, is it immigration reform? is it climate change? what's going to be, jobs notwithstanding, because i know that's going to
agree to get big compromises on these issues. >> can i add the role of history suggests the clinton and ronald reagan the second term as the productive term, the big achievement so it's hard to know whether the republican party will -- where they will push the blame if that happens, but the question is how they decide to spend the next four years and i think it's very hard to tell but there is some hope in looking back at both clinton and reagan. >> he was also a far right to limit took running the republican party at the time whoever they equivalent was a time and. but in fact he wasn't. life was a little more complicated by the fearful analogy. >> he raised taxes -- >> i think that's why the parties in opposition tend to be less responsible than parties of power. i think you probably agree. >> agree from your point of view i can think of the times when the other party the of irresponsibly in opposition and the question as it seems to me it from the is elected and you have the party that you think would be responsible and is in the position they have to govern and we will see what
between bill clinton and bob dole? they didn't matter at all. when they do, a moment rather than the overall tenure of the debate. before the words go by, it's water cooler talk. it's right there. if it looks too staged it looks too staged and mitt romney, one of hig biggest problems with the public, a questioning of his authenticity. if it comes across as a maneuvered, it's less effective. he needs to challenge the frame bill clinton built successfully at the democratic convention. maybe the commit isn't where you want it to be but it's better than when he first got into office. romney has an opportunity to cause voters to look at this through a different lens. that's very important for him. >> president obama trying to lower expectations for wednesday. what he said at a campaign rally in las vegas yesterday. >> governor romney, highse's a man. but, what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and the source of security for hard-working americans. that's what people are looking for. that's what the american peo
've seen president clinton talk about why it took eight years to get us surpluses and i think it will be finally clear, because, unfortunately. >> jehmu. >> the media has focused only on-- >> let me get the final word to angela. >> president obama has a record and the bottom line, we have anemic economy. people don't have jobs and they're still incleased home foreclosures and mitt romney has talked about what he's going to do to create a more prosperous america. >> most americans don't want most republicans want him to open his mouth. >> you don't know what what's in their minds and hearts, so don't predict. >> kelly: you're listening to angela mcglowan and jehmu green, the campaign in libya, not only policy, but national security and the economy, all of this put in play a big factor in this week's first debate. thank you, jehmu green and angela mcglowan, we're days away from the first presidential debate and of course, live coverage of the main event hosted by our own megyn kelly and bret baier coming up this wednesday, october 3rd only on the fks news channel. fox news chann
okay debater the he did well against hillary clinton in the democratic primaries in 2008. he did well against john mccain. obviously he won the whole thing. four years ago, though, and he is dealing with that challenge and could be rusty and the challenge of the economy in some of the battleground states. he got 11,000 people at a rally in las vegas last night and tried to make the case that things are coming around. >> i want to promote a new economic patriotism. one that is rooted in the belief we grow the economy best when everyone has a shot. and the middle class is thriving. i won't pretend it will be easy to get there. it took us a bunch of years to get us in this mess. it will take us a few more to get us out. >>reporter: the place where the president is doing presentation is a microcosm of the state, lake las vegas, the boom and bust if you will, with celebrities with multimillion dollar homes but the resort area went bankrupt and some of the hotels went away and now they are coming back, housing surprising are starting to lift. not as quickly as people want to say but it is t
is not a member of the department of defense. it should have been a state department person, hillary clinton, or it should have been leon panetta. >> steve: why was she selected to go out and say the same thing over and over on all the shows and not hillary clinton? >> i think it came down to the short straw. of who had to go out and sell the line. she did a horrible job. >> eric: james clapper saying, oops. we may have screwed up and he's the director of national intelligence. right? >> we still then have a problem with our intelligence gathering systems. but it still comes back to the president who is supposed to be getting these intelligence briefings and up with dates every single day and make the decisions. he's the commander in chief. there is a responsibility there. >> steve: does somebody need to be fired over this cover-up and debauchle? >> i think on 6 november, that person will be fired. >> steve: okay. >> eric: next topic, you have a new ad out. it's pretty darn good. let's take a listen to a piece of that ad. >> february 16, 2003, fort hood, texas, lieutenant colonel allen west
comprises on the big issues. >> can i add, i mean, a little history can clinton and rage. the second term was the productive term. the big achievement. it's hard no know whether the republican party will -- where they will push the blame if that happens. but the question is how they decide to spend the next four years. and i think it's very hard to tell. but there is some hope in looking back at both clinton and reagan. >> reagan was considered a far-right lunatic running a far right republican party, by the way, at the time. by whoever the equivalent was at the time. maybe it was tom freedman. in fact he wasn't. >>, i mean, life is more complicated despite the analogy. >> he raced. he raised taxes when he needed to . >> he did a lot of things and, you know, that's why i think parties in opposition tend to be less responsible than parties in power. i think you probably agree with that. >> what's different. >> difference in agreeing from your point of view. i can think of times when the other party also behavedder responsely in the opposition and the question is, it seems to me is if romne
follow up on secretary clinton's meeting with him. he has denied that they had a phone conversation and instead said he also spoke with governor romney. >> well, i don't think that benjamin netanyahu is tampering with the american election. he has a timeline that he has to deal with. an existential threat coming from iran. working on nuclear arsenal with leaders that deny the holocaust and promised a new one and have vowed to wipe the state of israel off the map. not everything is actually about barack obama and the election prospects. these guys have serious issues to deal with. the president of the united states is quite literally phoning it in and benjamin netanyahu is laying out a real scenario. this is something that the world ought to be dealing with, that leader of the free world, the united states would've been much more engaged than there would've been international coalition to deal with this looming threats. mitt romney may very well have to deal with what barack obama leads in his wake, and there will be a great deal left in his wake. megyn: the readout of the call doesn
their minds than we think. the democratic convention moved the needle in this race because bill clinton went out for 45 minutes and made a case on substance largely against mitt romney and he made it. and romney's 47% remark moved the needle. there is a narrow lead for president obama. so romney needs to make the case affirmatively for his program and why it's better than the president's. this is not just a referendum. this was the romney theory going in. he needs to prove that he's a better choice for the next four years. >> people are still persuadable. 15% is a pretty big number. if you look at undecided voters in most polls it's around 6%. but rich is right. people will pay attention to this and they will look for something maybe to make them change their minds for people who aren't completely thrilled about their choice which actually i think in both parties it's most people. most people aren't that excited about their choice. but it's mostly the independent voters they will have to focus on. bill: you make the case this debate is really for them. the persuadables. >> it's not just for
a debate with then-candidate bill clinton. the gesture gave voters the impression that he was impatient and uninterested. during the 2000 presidential debates, al gore got up in governor george w. bush's grill. look. [laughter] just a classic moment where he was invading his personal space a little, and, boy, did he take some flak. mr. bush gave him a nod and kept talking. in one of the more unusual moments during the vice presidential debates in '92 between republican dan quayle, democrat al gore and the third party running mate of ross perot who was admiral james stockdale, there was this moment. >> admiral stockdale, your opening statement, please, sir. >> who am i? [laughter] why am i here? [laughter] [applause] megyn: he was totally charming and likable but also got a lot of criticism for his performance in that debate, and, you know, his family later came out and said they thought it was unfortunate because they thought it changed his legacy, and he was a very honorable man. in any event, we are all watching wednesday night. they say this is going to be the most important debate b
and bill clinton i am protested because of lies and coverups, where is the accountability in this administration, own up to the fact that we are at war with an evil force never be molified or satisfied until we're all dead. this is not about political offices or expanded geopolitical orders, this is about the survival of our civilization, if this administration can't or won't lead in the battle then step aside and let someone do it who won't lie to us and endanger our children. [applause] well, on friday, the office of the director of national intelligence issued a statement, attempting to put the matter to rest, going to washington is the chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge. why this document dump on a friday afternoon? >> well, you know, governor, as well as everyone else when you've got bad news, the place you put it is late on friday, what we had with the statement from director of national intelligence, a person who is a top intelligence officer in the united states government and i have the statement right here. and what i believe it does, seems to gi
? >> the administration was lock in step with their statement. you had hillary clinton that came out. you had our u.n. ambassador that came out. you had jay carney, the white house press secretary saying in essence that this attack was spontaneous. it was because of an anti-muslim video. now we know to the contrary i'm so dlidded that john kerry even is he working with barack obama on the debates is going to lead an investigation to actually see what happened. we need to know what the house knew and why we did not beef up security at our embassies. the fact that this anti-muslim film came out in january we used that to blame the attacks in benghazi? >> marc, why the detect though fox news reporting 24 hours afterwards and our sources confirming that and in my mind i'm looking at the calendar september 11th. five days later have you secretary rice up on the sunday talk shows on five different shows vociferously defending, this mark? >> again, the president of the united states within 24 hours called this an act of terror. we knew this was a terrorist attack. we didn't know who did it and whether it
. the more affluent people keep it. our economy goes down. i think during the last -- when clinton was in, he balanced the budget. when bush and got it, they spent money like it was going out of style. >> is your vote going to barack obama this time? >> yes. i feel that he is qualified in every phase of the government. i do not think romney knows enough about foreign policy. i think he will get us into a war if he keeps saying what he is saying. >> we will hear about for a policy more in the debate in florida. -- foreign policy it in the debate in florida. >> last night was an important night for the country. [cheers and applause] the got the chance to cut through of all the attacks and counterattacks associate with the campaign. instead they're able to listen to substance. i appreciated the fact that jim lehrer asked questions about substance. i was able to ask the president, why did he focus on obamacare when we have millions of people out of work? [applause] why isn't that the middle class is the bird in this country? why we have so many people out of work? -- why is it that the middle cla
on the correspondence between one of hillary clinton-- secretary deputy-- >> assistant deputy secretary of state. what kind of way is that to have an interview with a reporter. >> and dana millbanks says this is what you have now, every secretary of state department has had a cadre of loyalists who see themselves as counter punchers and punching hard against the media and everybody else and it's a professional, almost, guild of spin doctors and now we see one what they really sound and act and talk like. everybody in politics knows them and this time it's public domain. >> rick: and very little attention, cal, in the media to this correspondent and in the meantime, when mitt romney goes overseas during the summer and one of his aides has a little heated exchange with a reporter, it's front page news. >> well, once again, we have more evidence, as if more was needed, that the bias of the mainstream media. i agree with judy, this was news, it was legit. the big argument was between the state department and cnn as to whether it was, some agreement was lived up to, but here is the real problem, the admin
